Program Guide 02-04--2018
1740 Carl Michael Bellman – Swedish poet, songwriter, composer and performer (d.1795); a central figure in the Swedish song tradition and remains a powerful influence in Swedish music, as well as in Scandinavian literature, to this day.
1837 Franz Liszt performs a chamber recital in Paris, featuring the then-unfamiliar Piano Trios of Beethoven; at the last minute, the performers reversed the printed order of the program, performing on the first half of the concert a trio by Johann Peter Pixis, and a Beethoven trio on the second half; the audience (and critics) warmly applauded the Pixis, which they thought was by Beethoven, and reacted coolly to the Beethoven, assuming it was by Pixis; among the critics, only Hector Berlioz noticed the switch.
1893 Bernard Rogers – American composer and teacher (d.1968); taught at the Cleveland Institute of Music, The Hartt School, and the Eastman School of Music; his pupils included Dominick Argento, William Bergsma, David Diamond, Ulysses Kay, John La Montaine, Ron Nelson and Robert Ward.
1908 first public performance of Stravinsky’s Symphony in E-Flat in St. Petersburg, conducted by Felix Blumenfeld; written during his apprenticeship with Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov and his first composition for orchestra.
1912 Erich Leinsdorf – Austrian-born American conductor (d. 1993); Music Director of The Cleveland Orchestra, 1943-1946, but was absent much of the time because he was drafted into the US Armed Forces for World War II; Music Director of the Boston Symphony, 1962-1969.
1945 first performance of Lousadzek (Coming of Light) for piano and strings by Alan Hovhaness in Boston, with the composer conducting from the piano.

22:00 CITY CLUB FORUM – recorded Friday at The City Club of Cleveland, a citadel of free speech, Being Black and Biracial in America,
Julie Lythcott-Haims, Author, “Real American: A Memoir”
Growing up the daughter of an African-American father and a white mother, in Palisades, New York and Madison, Wisconsin, Julie Lythcott-Haims had to navigate a white world. Her newest novel, Real American: A Memoir, details her journey in that world - from being a mixed-race teen to her years as a Stanford undergraduate and Harvard Law School, and traveling to Ghana in 2015 to see where her father proposed to her mother.
American demographics have changed significantly since Lythcott-Haims' childhood in the 70’s – in fact between 2000 and 2010, the number of white and black biracial Americans more than doubled. However, Lythcott-Haims acknowledges that “we black folks are seen as the other or far, far worse” and hopes her book invites compassion for those who have a different life experience.
Prior to writing this novel, Lythcott-Haims published How to Raise an Adult: Break Free of the Overparenting Trap and Prepare Your Kid for Success. She also served as Dean of Freshmen and Undergraduate Advising at Stanford University for over a decade. Her work has appeared on TEDx talks, Forbes, and the Chicago Tribune.
